A Few More Christmas Cards

My sister Sharon and our cousin Carol came over today and we made Christmas cards. My daughter Allie came by too, and we all zipped over to my Mom's house (she lives next door) for some fresh baked Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookies. What a great day!

This one is made with a new Squigglefly image called Bare Tree by Pamela Lehto. Such a cute image! I am entering this in the Christmas Card Challenge #49 - Dimension.

I did this one for the MIX41 Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge is to use no paper other than as a card base. I used some foil tap which I embossed and cut out using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die. The center of the flower is a Jolee's sticker given to me by a sweet friend for my birthday. I added a bit of Stickles to the greenery from a Dollar Tree pick.

This card is made with an image new to Squigglefly by Dawn Collins called Patchwork Bird. I love this bird and I have several more ideas for Christmas cards made with it.



  1. Sounds as if you had a very fun day :) Always lovely to see any of my images being used and I do like the simplicity of all of these cards - great work!

  2. Love the snow on the tree and raffia bow. Lovely job on the others too :)

  3. All so striking and pretty. So lucky you are to have your mum live next door.

  4. Nancy I just adore the color scheme on these. Your first card has such great texture, and I love the raffia and the piercing you did. Your second card looks like a vintage Christmas card. I love all the different embossing textures on your flower. The last card is really cute and you picked a great sentiment to go with it. You are getting quite a pile of Christmas cards!

  5. Each card is just amazing! Love the snow on the first card and the raffia is perfect! Beautiful cards and beautiful color combo!

  6. How wonderful to have family to make cards with and have your Mom next door. So much to enjoy. Love your wonderful cards, Nancy. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Put that to music. :-)

  7. Nice productive day you had making these beautiful cards, but the best part, I'm sure, was spending time with family and eating those delicious sounding cookies. Maybe I'll come down to visit your Mom someday soon and get some of those cookies for myself. YUM!! LOL Enjoy your Sunday

  8. Sounds a great day crafty, family, and peanut butter cookies.
    Loving your cards I especially like your first one, not that there is anything wrong with the others of course.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
